How Trenchless Sewer Relining Works

As the name implies, trenchless sewer relining does not require digging a massive trench in your yard to remove your old, worn-out sewer line. Instead, this process uses the old sewer line as a sort-of “template” in which a new sewer line will be run. The process starts with two small holes in the ground, one on each end of the section of sewer line that’s being replaced. The line is cut at this point, and a special line is fed through the damaged section.

The plumber then pulls a fabric liner doused in high-quality resin through the entire length of the damaged section. That liner is then capped and attached to an air compressor, which fills it with air and blows it up like a balloon and fill the interior space of your old sewer line. Once the resin dries, it creates a waterproof, durable, and rigid sewer line that will function exactly as your old one would, all without ever having removed or dug up your pipe! The new section is then attached to your plumbing system, and the holes around the sewer line are filled in again and your life goes back to normal!

Trenchless sewer relining is a much quicker and easier way of completely replacing your sewer line. This process works for sewer lines of many different sizes, from small diameters to large pipes designed for multi-family or even some commercial sewer line connections. The entire process can be completed in as little as one to two working days, and the new pipe linings are rated to last for as much as 50 years or more!
